Let’s be honest, rational, and realistic: buying a home can be the hardest, most stressful and overwhelmed event in our lives. One may be lucky enough to have a smooth experience, but no one is chosen to be lucky or would like to take the chance. While the most important decision in the entire process is which home to buy, choosing an agent/broker comes second. Here comes all my experience with Flora Sun so you can think about whether she’s right for you.
Let me write down my experience on four major competences of Flora:
1.Integrity. I have been trying to buy a house in greater Seattle area for more than six months. Flora is very patient from day one and always gives professional opinion in the best interest of me, even when it means giving up a trade!!! A lot of brokers are too trigger happy even if they are aware that you might be triggered by a small factor which is not rationally very important. So it’s very fortunate to have Flora work with me. Her integrity is a gem and her patience is a gift.
2.Knowledge. Flora has been working in the real estate market in greater Seattle area for more than 5 years. She knows the local market inside out. Take the most important feature, location, for an example, Flora would explain to us in details about the traffic, neighborhood, schools, and even potential natural hazards (not the Big One but more specifically). As a result, Flora has been able to prepare and provide valuable inputs for every single house we viewed. Further, her knowledge promotes the process of searching relevant houses. We were able to quickly find and focus on our interested houses.
3.Execution. I found my loved house. Flora ran the show completely. She made an earliest possible appointment and we viewed the house as the first among about 5 tours in a few hours. Pre-inspection was then scheduled in an hour by an experienced inspector who would only accept unplanned plan from Flora. Day and night, Flora worked really hard to coordinate, call, text, and report. We gave our offer within 30 hours and there turned out to be more than three offers. Things come and go, eventually, we finalized our dealing process!
4.Diligence and being super responsive. Flora is always on time and responsive. You are supposed to hear back from her within ten minutes if not less. She is also very flexible with her schedule. If you prefer weekend, no problem. If you would like to view a house during the weekday, no problem. Busy during daytime and want to go with 7pm, no problem.
